I am Deaf!

I am Deaf!

By: Poppy Togwell, Laycock School, Year 6

I am Deaf
I’ve got one implant
When I got my implant
It was great!!
I could hear everyone

When I was little I had hearing aids
I didn’t like it
I kept on taling them off

My sisters stay at home
My mum teaches them
But I go to school
to find deaf children

I don’t like it
when my batteries run out
I don’t like it when
Children say,
“What’s that in your ear?”

I like it when I go swimming
I can’t hear anything
but my family sign for me
and I know what they mean

Soon I’ll get another implant
I feel excited
I will hear cars going both ways

I will be safe…
